1988 Topps Stickers, Frank White
#39 Frank White
Actually, that should probably be "#39 Glenn Davis" since he is on the front of the card (the sticker portion). But, since it isn't signed by Glenn Davis, I am listing it as a Frank White card.
I got this card in a repack box a few weeks before Royals Fanfest. That was the only pack of this stuff that I have ever ripped. They are smaller than regular cards. There is a regular card behind this one in the scan so that you can see the difference in size. I'm not sure why there is a sticker on one side and baseball card like thing on the back. I guess Topps did this so you would still have something to collect and trade even if you removed the sticker.
I got this card signed at Fanfest this year. Just like with the Royals Caravan, Frank stuck to the rules and only signed one of my cards. He was the only player in the alumni lines that only signed one. I had three cards in my book and he decided to sign the one in the middle, this one. While he signed it, he said "it's been a long time since I have seen this card". And that was that.
